What do you think.........good buy, or goodbye to £36?

I think that looks great, and it will look even better when you've cleaned everything up and re-assembled it. Those 1995-ish Saracens are solid bikes and good looking IMO (especially in that frame size and colour). :)

And then the next bike is harder to identify, but its a trekker. I got it in 1989 I think, but it may have been old stock then, I seem to remember it covered in dust at the back of a shop.

It was all XT equipped, so I think it was a Trekker XT limited edition. It had the wishbone seat stays and U brake under the chainstays but no U brake at the front. Here its got Scott AT4 handle bars fitted. I really loved this bike and have not seen another since.

This is mine - started with a NOS frame bought from Bankrupt Surplus - think it's a Hardtrax from the 90s but not sure of the year.

Tried hard to find matching forks but to no avail so bought the opposite colour - yellow Project 2s, and that set in motion a (more or less) purple and yellow theme, until this was the end result.

Nice frame, lovely coloured forks, but horrible yellow tyres!

Yep. very marmite. I like coloured tyres myself but they are only cheapo kendas. Will do til I find something nicer.
